Short Bio

I did my undergraduate and master study at Department of Systems Science, the University of Tokyo, Japan, where I got my Bachelor and Master degrees (both in Systems Science) in 1999 and 2001, respectively under the supervison of Prof. Masataka Nakamura. In October 2001, I joined the pre-doc program of Berlin/Zurich Joint Graduate Program "Combinatorics, Geometry, and Computation" in ETH Zurich, Switzerland, and in April 2002 I started my PhD study at Research group of Prof. Emo Welzl in Institute of Theoretical Computer Science, Department of Computer Science, ETH Zurich, and got my PhD in 2005. In April 2005, I was appointed at Department of Information and Computer Sciences, Toyohashi University of Technology, Japan as a research assistant and joined Discrete Optimization Laboratory (led by Prof. Toshihiro Fujito). I was promoted to an assistant professor in April 2007 there. In December 2007, I moved to Graduate School of Information Science and Engineering, Tokyo Institute of Technology as an associate professor, supported by Global COE Program "CompView: Computationism as a Foundation for the Sciences" financed by Japan Society for the Promotion of Science. In October 2010, I moved to Center for Graduate Education Initiative, Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology as a research associate professor. Since April 2012, I have been at Department of Communication Engineering and Informatics, Graduate School of Informatics and Engineering, The University of Electro-Communications. In April 2016, the department changed its name to Department of Computer and Network Engineering. In April 2017, I was promoted to a professor there.
